Going all out!

This past weekend I was thrilled to get a big order for babyshower decorations. This order included a floral backdrop, photo frame and photo props. 

This babyshower had a garden/tea party theme which included light pinks and beige with some gold. Initially we were going to go with a curtain backdrop to go with the flowers. 

Luckily, I had access to a roll of artificial grass and I wanted to go for the grass backdrop. It’s really easy to have all the visions and ideas πŸ’‘ but once you start putting it all together, it’s a lot of work. 

I purchased two 4’x8′ foam boards from The Home Depot (I ended up just using 1). I also purchased heavy duty adhesive to glue the artificial grass onto the foam board. Please be aware that most of these adhesives recommend a 24hr period to “cure”. Luckily I started early and I placed my foam board, with the adhesive and artificial grass, in the sun which cut down the time it took to “cure”. 

 

I used a frame made of PVC pipes and zip ties to hold the foam board. Also, I added bricks to the back legs of the frame for extra support. The curtains helped hide the piping and the edges of the foam board. 

After that, it was pretty easy to attach the paper flowers. I just used floral pins and it held together really well. 


I used some of the same colors for the photo props and the floral photo frame. They complimented the theme pretty well. 


I’m not surprised at all that I challenged myself to do this type of backdrop. However, I’m definitely not going to start building a backdrop the day before. Lol. I literally worked all day from morning to night on this thing. Thank God it came together as well as it did. πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™‚
